I'm just wondering: what's the benefit of packaging Python
projects in Fedora?
You can use them as requirements for packaged applications.
I can see the reason about packaging architecture specific packages,
since they will benefit of optimizations and security flags that Fedora
uses, but noarch packages are simply the source code that gets compiled
at runtime by the Python interpreter, aren't they?
In what way is different from installing them by pip? Does packaging
them worth spending resources (disk space, Koji cycles) and packagers time?
See above. If they are required by something, it is necessary.
Packaging leaf libraries as RPMs however indeed brings very little benefit.
